Police Services Division, Patrol Operations, Court Liaison

The court officer acts as the liaison with the District Attorney's Office, City Prosecutor's Office, Municipal Probation, Municipal Court, Boulder County Juvenile Detention, and the Boulder County Sheriff's Department Jail.

In the early 1990's, the police department found that a tremendous amount of patrol time was committed to transporting prisoners to jail, and, in some instances, from jail back to court. To minimize the time commitment for the patrol division, the court liaison officer position was created. This officer's primary responsibility is to manage the welfare of prisoners while they are housed in the Longmont holding facility and to transport those prisoners to jail if they are ineligible or unable to make bond.

For individuals sentenced in municipal court, the judge may order the defendant transported to facilities inside or outside of Boulder County, including metro-area juvenile detention and assessment centers. If individuals are incarcerated at the time of their required Longmont Municipal Court appearance, the court officer transports that individual from the facility to municipal court. When time permits, the court officer attempts to arrest individuals living in Longmont that are wanted on warrants.

Other responsibilities of the Longmont Police Department Court Liaison includes:
